Lauzon stays in, Senyshyn cut from Canada’s World Junior Championship team

The first rounder that has everyone talking is just gonna have everyone talking more. Meanwhile, a member of the same Draft Class sticks around

The controversy around Zach Senyshyn will never ever go away, will it.

Canada’s World Junior team kicked the holy crap out of the Czech Republic in an 8-0 shredding of everything the Czechs know and love, but that wasn’t the big that got prospect-happy fans all interested. At least, not here in Boston. No, today was the last day before cuts were made to Canada’s roster, and many were to be painful

As Bob McKenzie tolled out the cut players, one Bruins prospect did in fact leave the team:

Just another unfortunate moment for Senyshyn, who has been the subject of scrutiny after being picked 15th overall in the 2015 draft. He has since been rather productive as a member of the Greyhounds in Sault Ste. Marie; Currently rocking 26 points in 23 games this year and having pretty much a point per game performance in 2015-2016, ending last year with 65 points in 66 games.

Defenseman Jeremy Lauzon on the other hand, stuck around! As McKenzie explains:

Always good to be needed. Lauzon in Rouyn-Noranda has been an assist machine, finishing last year with almost 40. He currently has 11 points in 13 games with the Huskies.

All the best to Lauzon as he continues to represent his country and a hearty good luck to Zach Senyshyn as he returns to the Soo Greyhounds.
